Type Strengths and Weaknesses
Pokemon of the same type will have the same Type strengths and weaknesses in battle. For example, when defending, Fire Types will take more damage from Water Type moves and less damage from Grass Type moves. When attacking, Fire Type moves will deal greater damage to Grass Types, but less damage to Water Types.

The easiest way to understand the Type Effectiveness in Pokemon is by taking a look at the simple chart below.
This chart shows which Types are Super Effective against certain Types, but weak against others. For example, in the second row form the top, Fire, Fighting and Ground Types are Super Effective against Steel. Steel is Super Effective against Ice, Rock and Fairy.

At the very bottom, Fighting is Super Effective against Normal Types, while Normal Types are not Super Effective against any other Type.


Pokemon Go One Types (151 Pokemon)
In Pokemon Go all Original Generation One Pokemon make up a total of 151 different Pokemon. There are 84 Pokemon with one Type and 67 Pokemon with Two Types.

The percentage breakdown of all Types is as follows:
TypeType Count% of All Generation One Pokemon
Poison3321.85%
Water3221.19%
Normal2214.57%
Flying1912.58%
Grass149.27%
Ground149.27%
Psychic149.27%
Fire127.95%
Bug127.95%
Rock117.28%
Electric95.96%
Fighting85.30%
Fairy53.31%
Ice53.31%
Ghost31.99%
Dragon31.99%
Steel21.32%
Dark00.00%

The majority of Pokemon are either Poison, Water or Normal. The fewest available Pokemon Types are Steel, Dragon and Ghost. At this time there are no Dark Type Pokemon within the original 151 Pokemon group.
Pokemon Go Type Tips
- Build your team with a variety of types to balance out weaknesses. A Team of pure Water Types may fair well against Rock, Ground and Fire, but a single Grass or Electric Pokemon could easily wipe out half of your team!

- Gym Leaders should stagger different Types of Pokemon to defend most strategically against challengers.

What types have zero effectiveness against what other types? Do ghosts receive normal damage?

Pokemon Go DB said...

Good question. I'm not sure how this will work in Pokemon Go just yet. I will update once the game is released and we know for sure.

Xcorb said...

What is a POI for Biome?

scott said...

POI - Point of Interest

Joey said...

Wonder if abilities and whatnot still semi-exist, i.e. Ghastly family being immune to ground due to levitation

Royojoe said...

So from what it seems fire types are almost impossible to find.

Woogie said...

Fire types are basically all I can find here in Arizona...

sean powell said...

Just for some help ghost attacks against a normal Pokemon do half damage in this game.

Anonymous said...

Has this been updated with verified Pokemon Go type chart? Does it align to any particular generation's type chart or is it unique to Pokemon Go?

Nicole Rivera said...

Are the pokemon locations valid?

Anonymous said...

Should try airport (city) or private airstrip (rural) to see if you get a bunch of Flying type

sean powell said...

The airport near me has a gym but has zero Pokemon to catch too much parking lot around for anything to catch

UtherSRG said...

How does having a dual type affect the effectiveness of an attack? Lapras is Water/Ice. Fire moves are super effective against Water, but not very effective against Ice. Would a Fire move be super effective against Lapras, not very effective, or just normal?

UtherSRG said...

"Type Strengths and Weaknesses"....

Can you do a similar chart for the defenses?

UtherSRG said...

I'm on a roll here.....

"Pokemon Go Locations By Type"... a possible rewrite...
While Pokémon of all types can be found anywhere, there is a significantly greater chance of finding a particular Pokémon in a biome that matches one of the Pokémon's types. For example, Caterpie will be found most often in Forests, Farms or Golf Courses, etc., while Seel, a water Type, is much more likely to be found near Lakes and Oceans.

Here is a list of Biomes and their matching Types.

ZeZign said...

Fountain spawns water types. Fyi

Jdub said...

So my Pidgeotto with steel wing and aircutter is good against xyz because he has a flying and a steel attack and week against abc as flying and normal. You seem to enjoy the stats, and it would be a ton of them, there's probably an immense data pool to go through to determine what is the best attack combos for each.
As a normal/flying, though in this case having no normal attack but a steel and a flying attack, what really counts in the fight. His type would be important to note defensively but not necessarily offensively. I know it's only several half formed ideas but do you get where I'm going? Lmao

Anonymous said...

So basically I'm gonna spend the rest of my life looking for fire types... great

Unknown said...

Thx. Great info.

Steve Buettner said...

I know that weaknesses are slightly different in go! As there are no immunities and super effective is x1.25 but do dual types get double weaknesses or double resistance? I.e. does gyarados take x1.5 DMG from electric?

Brian Geronimo said...

It seems that ghost type is the best to put in a gym for now.
It has four types that it has reduced damage from, and only two types that does extra damage. Dark types does not exist yet, so only same Ghost type is effective on your Pokemon, which means s/he's just equally effective on the enemy.

Wanderson Alves de Lima said...

Anyone could answer this questiona? Dual types get double weaknesses or double resistance?
